How the course works
English for Everyone is designed for people who want to teach
themselves the English language. Like all language courses, it
covers the core skills: grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation,
listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Unlike in other
courses, the skills are taught and
Events in your year
practiced as visually as possible, using
images and graphics to help you
understand and remember. The practice
book is packed with exercises designed to
reinforce the lessons you have learned in
the course book. Work through the units
in order, making full use of the audio
available on the website and app.
One of the uses of the present perfect is to talk about
events in a time period that hasn’t finished. Use the past
simple for a time period that is completed.

Events in your year

KEY LANGUAGE PRESENT PERFECT AND PAST SIMPLE
This year has not finished yet.
Use the present perfect.

If the time period referred to
is ongoing, use the present
perfect. Use the past simple to
talk about a completed event.
